Haynes, Hanson and Clark Conditions Stakes

The Haynes, Hanson and Clark Conditions Stakes is a flat horse race in Great Britain which is open to two-year-old thoroughbreds. It is run at Newbury over a distance of 1 mile (1,609 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in September.

The race is named after its long-term sponsor, the wine merchant Haynes, Hanson and Clark. It has often provided an early sighting of subsequent equine stars – past winners include Henbit (1979), Shergar (1980) and Rainbow Quest (1983). Another participant was Shahrastani, the runner-up in 1985.

Future champions have appeared less frequently in the race since the late 1980s. The most notable winners of this period are Unfuwain, King's Theatre and Nayef. Defeated horses have included Snurge, White Muzzle, Millenary and Red Rocks. The 2006 race was contested by both Authorized (3rd) and Aqaleem (2nd), subsequently first and third in the following year's Derby.
